Pocket Number-17: Northern Soul Grilled Cheese, Church Street

WP_20160626_11_55_35_ProNorthern Soul Grilled Cheese is situated beneath the arched roof of a converted market stall. Its interior is made urban rustic with wood and plywood surfaces, stools on segments of universal steel beams, chalked menus on slate, light bulbs hung in graters, etc.

At the open plan griddle area I watched as grillers made WP_20160625_14_37_03_Pro cheese sarnies and mixed milkshakes.

I asked the woman taking orders what she’d recommend and WP_20160625_14_25_56_Protried the fresh tasting “Russian,” with roast ham, Russian dressing, maple-glazed beets … and cheese! It arrived with a gherkin and a side of apple and red cabbage slaw plus I was given a can of cola on the house.

WP_20160625_14_20_44_ProDan started the business about a year ago and it’s popularity has resulted in it being nominated as finalist for Cheap Eats Venue of the Year 2016 at the Manchester Food Awards.

I explained to Dan about what I was doing and told him that Nico wishes him luck at the awards. Dan gave the assemblage a paper take-away bag stamped with the Northern Soul Grilled Cheese logo and then sent me to Pancho’s Burritos near Oxford Road for a mega burrito!!
